About Gymsanity Blog

I have been a fitness fanatic since high school, which means I’ve been hitting the gym on pretty much a daily basis for the last 30 years.

Sometimes, what I have witnessed is so remarkable that I have to rush home to call someone. With this blog, I can just share with everyone.

Past a certain age, it takes twice as much time to regain your conditioning versus the length of time off. For example, if you’re going to take a month off for a summer vacation, you’ll have to grind away at the gym for two months to return to your pre-trip form. A similar rule applies…
